Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
A delegation of housewives from north Colby Avenue presented Everett city commissioners today with a petition asking removal of the "No Playing on Parking Strips" signs from along the street center parkway. Everett Safety commissioner Arvid Johnson, who had ordered the signs put up, said that because of the petition he would order them removed.

The Darrington School board approved the election of Richard Soth as a fifth grade teacher in the district. Soth would begin work when school opened this fall. He was the sixth person to be appointed to fill vacancies next semester. Superintendent John Ireland reported that two more vacancies remained to be filled.

25 years ago (1988)
Automatic scoring was now in Everett. The public was invited to come try bowling with Accu Score, bowling of tomorrow, at Evergreen Bowl on Claremont Way and Glacier Lanes on Evergreen Way. During the month of August players could bowl every other game free.

Mukilteo Mayor Emory Cole liked to say that his town had "a Mark Twain feeling" about it. The recent Mukilteo Festival at Rosehill was an example of that. In Mukilteo people knew their neighbors and their kids grew up together.
